I had a good tournament game on POTC played in spanish (like i always do).

I thought about picking it in the playoffs and joked with a buddy that it's better to play first since you can put it in spanish.

Are there any rules for or against this in the IFPA ruleset?

There isn't no rule for IFPA/PAPA that I am aware of.

A few years ago, when in B division at PAPA, I started to play Family Guy in Spanish during my qualifying rounds. Mainly because I was struggling and it makes me laugh.

I actually had someone report me to the front desk for cheating. They were told that it changes the sound quotes, not convert scoring to pesos.

I guess it's the tournament directors discretion then

I wouldn't have a problem with it in a single player game.

I don't think anyone would mind the single player game.

I'm more curious how it would apply to multiplayer games.

How do you choose the language?

Hold down right flipper button after adding player(s).

This feature is on POTC, FGY, and possibly other sterns

There is a menu option that when you start the game within a few seconds you hit one of the flippers.
